A loan of $3,750 helped a member to buy beauty products.

Mujeres Empresarias Group's story

The “Mujeres Empresarias" group is made up of 8 hard-working, entrepreneurial women who all have businesses selling different products. Hilda is 30 years old, single, and has one dependent. She has been working as a seamstress in a textile workshop for two years. In her free time, she sells beauty products thanks to the encouragement of one of her fellow group members. In the past, Hilda used to work for the Chinalco mining company.

Hilda invested her loan in buying more beauty products. Her biggest desire is to own her own sewing workshop where she produces polo shirts/t-shirts. The group is grateful to Kiva lenders for their loan.
